We are happy to announce that Hawila entered into a partnership with the circus collective Acting For Climate (A4C), opening inspiring collaboration!
From July to September Hawila will be touring together around Scandinavian ports with an onboard show called “Into the water“.
Circus show on board Hawila
“Into the water” is a contemporary circus show aiming at raising ecological awareness as well as triggering a wider debate on sustainable development. During the summer Hawila will, therefore, become not only an unconventional stage for performing arts but also a meeting point for those who want to embark for a debate on redefining our relationship with the environment around us. Therefore Hawila can continue to carry on its main vision which is is to engage and bridge coastal communities as well as serving as an educational platform to trigger a debate on the issues surrounding globalization. This summer we will sail from port to port to inspire people with a performance focused primarily on cycles and water. Among the “Into the Water” crew, you will find circus artists, actors, musicians, dancers, scientists, activists, visual artists, locals, sailors- all joining forces to bring awareness and inspire action towards a more sustainable way of life. We want to invite you to become a part of our amazing community this summer!

Acting for Climate
Acting for Climate is a group of young artists inspired by Piet Hein’s definition of art as ”the solution to the problems that cannot be formulated clearly before being resolved”, they want to use their art in the aim to achieve a sustainable future. Artists have an unique opportunity and responsibility to inspire action, joy, and change in relation to these challenges that concern us all. A4C wish to create a network of people, artists and activists that can work creatively on how to inspire change for a sustainable future. They intend to strengthen an expanding global network of action through interaction with local artists and activist. Acting for Climate is not just a group of performers, it is also a mindset introduced to the world.
As artists, they feel they have a responsibility to act on and talk about the challenges we see in our society.

Havne Fest for Klima( Harbor Fair for Climate)
In each harbor, the show will be accompanied by Havne fests for Klima (Harbour Fairs for Climate) aiming to bring people together for an invigorating gathering revolving around sustainability, promoting local producers of organic goods and people sharing information on projects that aim to consume and transport goods in a more sustainable way. The program of the festivals will consist of workshops, talks, art exhibitions, salvaged dumpster kitchen, and concerts. The aim of this year’s adventure is to share the knowledge and engage the audience in the search for the tools on how to make a very much needed change in our everyday life – as well as how to make it a more global reality.
